Earlier the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker expressed support for the initiative of the European Parliament about the appointment of a special representative of the European Union for Donbas and Crimea. He claimed this in the interview to Interfax-Ukraine agency.
‘I think that this is a wonderful idea. I met with the members of the European Parliament about two weeks ago. I urged them to be focused on Donbas and Crimea,’ Volker claimed.
He expressed his readiness to work together in the case of the appointment of the EU special representative.
